If I would've told you at the start of the season that the Jaguars, Vikings, and Eagles would be playing on championship Sunday, you would've thought I was crazy, but here we are. In episode 24, Pete Solari examines Sunday's two big games, and explains exactly why the Jaguars have a puncher's chance in New England, and why he's reluctantly pulling for the Vikings to become the first NFL team to play a Super Bowl on their home field. Also, Pete keeps it local, and breaks down the New York...

It's a new year and with the holidays and the Wild Card playoffs behind us, Pete Solari looks back at this past weekend's action, more specifically, two teams on very different paths: the Chiefs who suffered another heartbreak, and the Saints who could be on their way to the Super Bowl. Also, Pete examines the circus that is the New York Football Giants. With a new GM in a place, a new head coach on his way, and the #2 overall pick in April's draft, Giants fans should be excited and optimistic,...

In episode 22, Pete Solari discusses the Giants' benching of Eli, and how truly egregious it is that a clueless coach like Ben McAdoo was given the green light to push a New York legend out the door. And with all of the team's problems, how is it that general manager Jerry Reese never bears any responsibility. Reese has now pushed the team's Hall of Fame QB out the door, less than two years after pushing the team's Hall of Fame coach, Tom Coughlin, out that same door. Coughlin meant more to the...

After a few weeks off, For Pete's Sake returned to MESN Radio on November 1st. In episode 21, Pete Solari discusses the ongoing protests around the NFL. At this point, the players are just being disingenuous. Do the Houston Texans really expect us to believe that, A)they took team owner Bob McNair's "inmates running the prison" comments literally, and B) they were offended by them? As NFL players continue to drift further away from reality, it's really no wonder why the league's...

It's episode 20 of For Pete's Sake! We're now five weeks into the NFL season and the league, and the sport, continue to see their favorability, popularity, and television ratings taking a nosedive, thanks to the increasingly unpopular national anthem protests. Commissioner Goodell and the league owners want nothing more than this story to just go away, but a few voices in the media, like Mike Wilbon, won't allow that to happen. Pete Solari takes Wilbon to task for calling Jerry Jones, and...

We're a quarter of the way through the 2017 NFL season, and one thing is certain: the NFL is scared! A few weeks ago, Colin Kaepernick's anthem protest was virtually dead. Then President Trump threw gas on the fire. Was it stupid? Sure. Unproductive? Absolutely. But make no mistake about it. It was a big win for the President, and a loss for the league. As it turns out, not crapping all over America, is a pretty popular position with Americans. With their popularity sagging and their TV ratings...

In episode 18 (episode 1 on MESN Radio), Pete Solari discusses the New York Giants' 0-2 start and why this could be the beginning of a very long season. It's no secret that Giants' problems start with the gaping holes in their offensive line, specifically LT Ereck Flowers. So why hasn't GM Jerry Reese gotten the memo? He's done little-to-nothing for several years fix, or even address the issues, along his offensive line. Also, it's beginning to look as though the Giants may have made a mistake...

The NFL is back, and so is For Pete's Sake: The Podcast. After one week of football, all ESPN's Stephen A. Smith learned was that somebody needs to sign Kaepernick immediately! But Pete Solari hits back with the same logic he's championed all offseason. According to Smith, Kaepernick could be starting for 10 NFL teams right now, but as Solari explains, there actually isn't a team in the league that would be better off moving forward with Kaepernick at QB, than they are right now. Also, Max...

It's episode 16 of For Pete's Sake: The Podcast! In this episode, Pete Solari looks back at Phil Jackson's tumultuous tenure as president of the New York Knicks (it's finally over!) and James Dolan's longer and even more tumultuous time as team owner. Also, Dennis Rodman's cozy relationship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is disgraceful and his rhetoric regarding the evil regime is dangerous. To make matters worse, he and his creepy agent are now exploiting a terrible tragedy of Kim Jong...

In episode 15 of For Pete's Sake: The Podcast, Pete Solari wraps up the NBA season by taking a look at the Warriors' Kevin Durant and how he stacks up with LeBron. Also, in the age of "super teams", Pete will compare the present day Golden State Warriors, with LeBron James' Miami Heat teams of the past, and explain why none of this is good for basketball. Over in the NHL, the playoffs were far more exciting than their NBA counterpart. The Pittsburgh Penguins have won back-to-back...

With OTAs underway and training camp right around the corner, Pete Solari talks NFL football in episode 14 of For Pete's Sake: The Podcast. More specifically, controversial quarterback Colin Kaepernick still hasn't found a home, and many of the activists, er journalists in the media are losing their minds! But why? Is the risk of signing Kaepernick worth the reward? At least one league owner doesn't believe so. Why did the press standing up for Kaepernick, but not Jay Cutler? And has there ever...

In episode 13 of For Pete's Sake, Pete Solari updates you on the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and points out how the NHL has, once again, blundered. Also, after the Rangers' latest playoff disappointment, has Henrik Lundqvist's window to win a cup (at least in New York) been slammed shut? Finally, with the NBA Draft Lottery in the books, Pete examines the Knicks' long history of draft dismay, including the famous 1985 draft and speculation that the league rigged that year's lottery so that Patrick...

It's an exciting time in sports. Las Vegas, a city professional sports leagues used to avoid like the plague, is all of a sudden the center of the sports universe, with the NHL and NFL on their ways to the Silver State. How long until the NBA and Major League Baseball join them? And while it's great that the NHL is expanding to Vegas, it's somewhat bittersweet that a fabled franchise like the Raiders are leaving their legacy in Oakland, for a shiny new stadium in Sin City. Is it time for all...

Just in time for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, I discuss a long line of incompetence by those running the NHL, and why the league has such a difficult time sustaining a sizable fan base. Also, I look back at Ty Cobb, one of the greatest ballplayer to ever live, revealing the truth about a man with a tarnished reputation. Prepare to have your mind blown. Everything you thought you knew will be turned on it's head. All that and more on episode 10 of For Pete's Sake.

In episode 009 of For Pete's Sake, I look ahead to tonight's National Championship between the Gonzaga Bulldogs and the North Carolina Tar Heels, but mostly, I rip the NCAA for ruining this tournament with their disingenuous virtue signaling, and their outright bullying of a sovereign state, to promote a policy that the vast majority of Americans disagree with. The NCAA is out of touch, out of control, and out to hurt female athletes.

In episode 008, I take a look back at the 2017 NCAA Tournament's first weekend. What did the selection committee get right, wrong? Do #2 and #3 seeds have an advantage over #1 seeds? And the NCAA's ugly habit of virtue signaling is now affecting March Madness. Plus, how Colin Kaepernick royally screwed himself. All that and more on episode 008 of For Pete's Sake.

On the eve of Selection Sunday 2017, I break down the NCAA Tournament resumes of 11 teams who find themselves in the uncomfortable position of being on the proverbial bubble. I also stack my bracket up against those of legendary bracketologists, Joe Lunardi of ESPN, and Jerry Palm of CBS Sports. Pete Solari's last four in: USC, Illinois State, Wake Forest, Monmouth. Pete Solari's first four out: Vanderbilt, Kansas State, Cal, Syracuse.

With the Super Bowl in the rear-view and March Madness right around the corner, February is a bit of a slow month in sports, so I took the opportunity to look ahead to baseball season, and discuss proposed rules changes, how technology can change the game for better, and other ways to improve our national pastime that don't include "speeding up the game."

Due to a busy weekend, episode 4 was recorded two days late (02/13/17) and, due to editing issues, was posted several days late as well. My apologies for that. For Pete's Sake will be back on track next Saturday (02/18/17) In this episode, I review how Kyle Shanahan and Dan Quinn ruined the Super Bowl for all of Atlanta. Also, Senator Bernie Sanders has absolutely no idea what he's talking about! His economics illiteracy was on full display in a debate with Senator Ted Cruz on the topic of...

Just a day after the Inauguration of President Donald J. Trump, I discussed the ridiculous backlash that NFL Hall-of-Famer Jim Brown, a Hillary Clinton supporter, received for having the audacity to accept the results of a democratically held election. While I won't typically stray from talking sports, this story was relevant because of Inauguration Day, as well as Jim Brown's involvement. I also felt that those criticizing Brown, such as Sporting News writer, David Steele, needed to be...
